with 1930s values and views, cowboy, not very knowledgeable, and he knocked that dead by his appearance and the way he handled himself. romney comes in and is similarly caricatured partly because of his own mistakes and partly because of what democrats said about him, partly because of the merciless attacks from the media on him. so he's got to be a fighter, someone who's competent, tough and takes the measure of barack obama and says look, we can't take four more years of this and here's where we're going. if he comes in there tough and competent and destroys that caricature, i think he can still wake up this country, and i think there's still a chance he can turn it around. he's got to win it, though, john. >> obama's campaign staff is telling everybody it sees how good romney is at debating. >> well, each of the campaigns sent out a memo basically saying how good the other guy is and stressing all of their guy's flaws. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having

screaming at once. and a storybook never seemed to have a chapter called m.s. or breast cancer. a storybook marriage? nope. not romney and i have is a real marriage. >>> question. assign a letter grade, a, to f, to ann romney's speech. eleanor? >> i give her an a. i think she comes across as warm and authentic. i don't know that it is necessarily going to deliver women's votes to mitt romney, i think she probably communicates more directly with women who are already in her corner. i don't know if she is talking to a 28-year-old single mom trying to raise two kids. i mean she is trying to talk to all of these women and so i think in a very difficult situation, she did a fabulous job. i have no criticism of the candidate's spouse. >> no financial problems there? >> well, financial meaning does she come across as rich as her husband does? >> for example, i imagine you have some financial challenges, do you not? >> most people do, john. she tried to relate to people who are struggling by saying that their first dining room table was a pull down ironing board. >> she did. she has had health prob
